Bottomland Hardwood Composition Change as Controlled by Regeneration and Hydrologic Processes


July 2015 - June 2019


Bottomland hardwood forests are distributed along rivers and streams in the southeastern United States, with the greatest concentration in the Mississippi Alluvial Valley. Recent research has indicated that hydrologic alterations are leading to broad scale changes in forest species composition. In this study, we will quantify hydrologic changes in selected bottomland hardwood forests and determine the effects of hydrologic processes on seed germination and seedling establishment of select tree species.
